The Compelling Charm of Numbers: Writing for and thru the Network of Data

Abstract (in English): 

In postmodern times writing is different. With Facebook the personal diary has returned, reformulated for the 21st century. But this is not the diary as we use to know it. Here time gains a persistence and epistemological import and the person or persons recorded shift from being narrator to the quantified subject. This is not only a philosophical or psychological issue but also an economic and political one.
